Single-segment speed run of the Sega Saturn version of Castlevania: Nocturne in the Moonlight (Symphony of the Night in English) as Richter, completed on 16 July 2006. Author's comments: Hello again! Thanks to DJGrenola for synching the audio! This run, just like with the Maria run I did earlier, came out of my simply wanting to show the character initially from a request. At the Gaming-Age forum, a poster made a topic about favorite Castlevania characters, and I mentioned hearing about an...

Hello. This is not a full game playthrough, just the last dungeon and two alternate endings beating the game with just the lead character and the Princess of Moonbrooke in the party. The second prince, the Prince of Samaltria (called Cannock in the NES version of the game) can be left out of the party soon after you get the boat. It seems that a lot of people complain about how crappy the second prince is (mainly his lack of survivability), myself included, so it seems that Enix allowed all...

Speed run of Dragon Quest 3 with a solo Hero in ~9:00. Author's comments:      Hello. This is a solo Hero playthrough of Dragon Quest 3 for the Super Famicom. It's not a "as fast as I can"-type run, more of a "completionist" one in which I tried to get all items found on the ground and in chests, and I went through all of the dungeons in the game as well. The playtime of the video up until the game is beaten appears to be about 9:08:29, with the reset/startup time...

Speed run of Final Fantasy 1 (PS1) in ~4:55. Author's comments:      Hello. This is my ~4:55 video playthrough of Final Fantasy 1 on the PS1. The version played is the Japanese version, mainly because it is the one I am used to (control-wise) and that this version does not have that "dancing cursor" problem (where the cursor seems to move on its own while the player is choosing an option, resulting in going to an undesired command) that the US version has in the game.

The multiple-image effect seen in the Hubble picture is produced by a process called gravitational lensing, in which the gravitational field of a massive object ? in this case, a cluster of galaxies ? bends and amplifies light from an object ? in this case, a quasar ? farther behind it.

*Description*: NASA announced today plans for a fifth servicing mission to the Hubble Space Telescope. Shuttle astronauts will visit the telescope to extend and improve the observatory's capabilities through 2013. Hubble precisely measured the age of the universe. It found evidence of dark energy. It delivered images of distant galaxies in the young universe. And now, with the state-of-the-art instruments to be installed during Servicing Mission 4 (SM4), Hubble will look into the universe with...

*Description*: These postage-stamp-size images reveal 36 young galaxies caught in the act of merging with other galaxies. These galaxies appear as they existed many billions of years ago. Astronomers have dubbed them "tadpole galaxies" because of their distinct knot-and-tail shapes, which suggest that they are engaging in galactic mergers. The galaxies were captured in 2004 in the Hubble Space Telescope's Ultra Deep Field (HUDF) survey of thousands of distant galaxies. They are part...

*Description*: This graph schematically plots two populations of stars Hubble has seen in a neighboring star cluster. The graph, a simplified version of the original data, plots stellar brightness (vertical axis) against stellar color-temperature. The normal main sequence stars in the cluster are plotted on the right curve. The cooler a star is, the redder it appears, and it diminishes in brightness. Hubble has identified the very coolest and faintest normal stars in the cluster. The curve on...

*Description*: Astronomers used this inexpensive telescope to find an extrasolar planet transiting the face of a Sun-like star 600 light-years from Earth. The telescope, which looks like a pair of binoculars, consists of two 200-millimeter telephoto camera lenses. The lenses are attached to electronic devices that measured slight dips in light output from the star, indicating that an object was crossing in front of it. The telescope is on the summit of the Haleakala volcano in Hawaii. Research...

*Description*: This illustrates the relative sizes of Uranus, Earth and Earth's Moon. The images are shown at the proper relative size, but not the correct relative distance from each other. Uranus is approximately 31,000 miles (50,000 kilometers) in diameter, or about four times the size of Earth. The Earth is approximately 7,900 miles (12,800 kilometers) in diameter, or about four times the diameter of the Moon, 2,100 miles (3,500 kilometers). Technical facts about this news release: About...
